Environmental Remote Sensing from Regional to Global Scales

Richard Lucas, A. R. Harrison

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter


This book is the result of a meeting of the IBG, held at the University College, Swansea, 1992. It discusses the use of remotely sensed data for the study of the environment from regional to global scales. Following an introductory chapter there are 13 individually authored chapters: remote sensing and terrestrial global environment research - the TIGER programme; explaining and monitoring land cover dynamics in drylands; use of remote sensing to characterise the regenerative states of tropical forests; global land cover comparison of ground based datasets to classifications with AVHRR data; snow monitoring in the UK using NOAA/AVHRR imagery; real-time heat source monitoring system using NOAA polar orbiting meteorological satellites; pre-zone classification of urban landcover for urban population estimation; attempts to drive ecosystem simulation models at local to regional scales; remote sensing and the determination of geophysical parameters; earth observation data; and scale and environmental remote sensing. -H.R.Goode
